Life Ready Studios, Camberwell

The brief was to convert two separate floors in an old tenancy into one new Gym, Pilates and Physiotherapy Clinic.  With its recent expansion into being a national brand, Life Ready Fitness raised the benchmark with this sophisticated Russell and George design that offered peaceful almost tranquil surrounds showcasing clean lines, reflections and timeless open space.

Key architectural highlights included the large open ceiling feature at the front reception area of hanging timber battens and bronze mirror wall.  The curved walls with timber slats housed the consultation rooms. One of the biggest challenges in turning this brief into a reality was the removal of floor joists on the first-floor level to create an open 9 metre high ceiling in the reception area.  The installation of an X-Bond floor to an extremely poor existing sub-floor surface also proved a challenge but nothing the experienced Yarra Valley Commercial team couldn’t handle!

The Yarra Valley Commercial team sourced manufactured and installed every single item. Deliverables included CAD Programming and inhouse production of all bespoke joinery items.  Closely working with the design team, Yarra Valley Commercial project managed the entire process.
